The flowers are on the hill ;
Tin' whirring winds hare almost bushed
The murmuring of (he rill I
The ran that lit the earth with goM
While sinking to its rest,
Has hung a onuieon banner out
To brighten up the west.

Among the ladiug flower,.
And left a requiem sighing tin-re
For Summer's dying hours I
And even Nature seems to mourn,
To watch bright tnoo.enls dia
Yet fading beauty lingers on
Each leaflet floating by.
How can they say the summer time

Oh I are not autumn's withered leaves
More beautiful than all ?
And can the bright blush of the rose,
However soft and fair,
Be half as lovely as the touch
Of dying beauty there?
i beautious summer fade
Ther is a sweeter charm for me
In autumn's mellow shade I
The withered flowers that droop and die
Each sera and yellow leaf
Seems but an emblem of this life,
Ho fading and so brief.
The flush must fade from every cheek,
The lustre from each eye,
And ell things beautiful must fade,
For all were made to die I
The smile must leave the laughing lip
And joyous boon depart,
For death's cold touch at last will chill

As the Rev. John Newton, that emi

bed, a friend waa reading to him the fif
teenth chapter of first Corinthians.
Coming to the tenth verse he read : "But
by the grace of God I am what I am.'
"Stop," said Mr. Newton: "that express

I am not what I might be. For God

the world. He baa said to every child of

Why then should I fail so grievously. If
I had only used those resources I might
have been much nearer what I ought to
be than I am. I might be a much more
consistent Christian than I am- I might
do more. The fault is not in God. It is

tice by letter, (returning a paper doe not
answer the law) when a subscriber doe
not take hi paper out of the office, and
a neglect to do so makes the Postmaster
responsible to the publisher for the pay
ment. 2. Any person who take a paper from
the Post-office- whether directed to hi
name or another, or w huther he had sub
scribed or not is responsible for the pay.
3. If a person order his paper discon
tinued, he must pay all arrearages, or the
publisher may continue to tend until pay
ment is made, and collect the whole
amount, whether ii be taken from the
qffiee or not. There can be no legal dis
continuance until the payment is niado.
4. If the subscriber order his paper to
be sloped at a certain time, and the pub
lisher continues to send, the subscriber is
bound to pay for it, i he takes it out of
the Post-office. The law proceeds on the
ground that a man must pay for what he
